A day in the

Peak District

A story from a place I call home... #peakdistrict

The Peak District The Peak District Is an area of outstanding natural beauty situated in the middle of the United Kingdom. Unspoilt, it helps form the backbone of England with rolling hills and mountains leading to the beautiful Pennines and far beyond. Surrounded by major cities of industrial Britain. The Peak District can be regarded as the 'lungs', of central England. An area to admire and an area to relax and play, an area to protect.

The Peak District

An area of great diversity, it is split into the northern Dark Peak, where most of the moorland is found and whose geology is gritstone, and the southern White Peak, where most of the population lives and whose geology is mainly limestone.

The following #stellerstory shows a day in the life of me, as I wandered the 'Great Ridge' and beyond.


I grew up here. I've lived here. Now I've moved away...I come back as much as I possibly can.

Reaching the summit is always an achievement. Taking in the stunning views is equally important.

    I really liked this. There is such beauty found in nature, and (as I'm a photographer myself) I loved how you composed and shot these images. The colours are really intriguing. Very well done.

    Really cool! It kind of reminds me of the moor in Arthur Conan Doyle's " The Hound of the Baskervilles".

    Great story. Know the place. Once I went upon the Snowdonia, in Wales. Took the last train to the top, got stuck in the mist and had to walk back. It was while being engaged with my travel companion.
